Pink Floyd - Southampton Dock

English
A A

Southampton Dock

They disembarked in '45
And no one spoke and no one smiled
There were too many spaces in the line
 
And gathered at the cenotaph
All agreed with hand on heart
To sheath the sacrificial knives
 
But now
She stands upon
Southampton Dock
With her handkerchief
And her summer frock
Clings to her wet body in the rain
 
In quiet desperation
Knuckles white upon the slippery reins
She bravely waves the boys goodbye again
 
And still the dark stain spreads between
Their shoulder blades
A mute reminder
Of the poppy fields and graves
And when the fight was over
We spent what they had made
But in the bottom of our hearts
We felt the final cut
 
Thanks!
